Afternoon Breezes


An openwork vest, when worked with double yarn overs in a filet mesh pattern, is as gentle as afternoon summer breezes. Knit in a light, linen-blend yarn, it barely touches the body, yet graces it with its feminine drape.

Its sideways construction, coupled with short-row shaping at the sides and along the front, gives the piece its swingy, A-line silhouette.

The sample pictured is knit with Handmaiden Fine Yarn Flaxen, 65% silk, 35% linen, (250 m./273 yds. per 100 g. skein), colour “Bronze”, size Medium.
